Woke Up to Such a pleasant surprise this morning when i saw that SELF created a 2017 list of 28 Black Fitness Professionals That you should be following on instagram. All Women by the way!

My family and I have a WhatsApp group that we chat in all day long and it was my brother who posted the link and happily shocked the hell out of me when I saw my name and my face. Good morning!

What an honor! The women on this list are all PHENOMENAL and many of them I already follow and am totally inspired by.

Serena Williams, absolutely.

Massy Arias, who doesn’t love MankoFit.

Lauren Williams, who I’ve met around the way on auditions and fitness modeling castings, such a sweet girl.

Jeanette Jenkins, who was one of the three celeb judges who picked me to win Women’s Health Magazine‘s Next Fitness Star.

Ally Love who I worked with for two years as I danced to entertain the crowds as a Brooklynettes dancer and she was the in-arena host. Small world right?

Lita Lewis, who is my #WCW. Total Girl Crush.

To be included on this list of rising black girl magic, (you’ll catch me at #4) humbles me and actually lights my engine to work even harder at fulfilling my purpose in the world of fitness and finding new ways to inspire YOU!
